As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Poll: Obamacare Less Popular Than EVER

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that 49 percent of adults think Obamacare is a bad idea, the highest tally the two new organizations have recorded since a survey taken in March 2010, when the law was passed.

And the opposition is intense. Among the 49 percent who vote thumbs down, 43 percent said they “strongly” hold that view.

Only 37 percent believe Obamacare is a “good idea.” And by a 38-19 percent tally, more people think they will be worse off than better off under Obamacare.

The survey tracks other recent polling, which has also found a startling gap of about 12 percent between those who favor the law and those who don’t.

The latest RealClearPolitics average of Obamacare polls puts opposition the law at just under 53 percent, nearly as high as its ever been since Obama signed it.

The polling suggests that, coupled with the administration’s scandals, Republicans will have plenty of issues going for them as they head in the 2014 midterm elections.

  1. I’d love to see the demographics of those polled, especially income level. Dear Leader’s class warfare strategy is likely the only reason the favorables are as high as they are.

  2. But in the White House and offices of every Democrat who voted for it all that poll tells them is:
    It’s all the Republicans’ fault because they won’t give us billions more to “explain” to the American people what’s good for them.

    Mark my words, Obamacare failures WILL be blamed on lack of funding and every mainstream “news” network whining over AP and Rosen now, WILL carry that narrative for the administration when the time comes.

    Never mind that this is the worst piece of legislation to have ever passed the Congress, for the sake of ideology and Dem party unity it will be forced upon the nation matter what the cost or damage wrought.

  3. Obamacare was intended to fail, leaving our medical delivery system in such chaos that we beg our government to fix it. Presto chango, single payer government health care for all. Thanks to the overreach by the IRS, DOE, DOJ, and numerous other corrupt alphabet agencies, trust in the federal government is at an all time low. I’m praying that bodes well for true constitutional reform, once we rid ourselves of this plague of tyranny that has infected us…

    • Saw Erik Rush’s column over on WND, and he was wondering in print when the revolution would start. And he wasn’t being ironic, either.

      One of the commenters on that piece went so far as to predict that we’ll see violence in the streets this fall.

      I’ve predicted as much, and been wrong about it, enough times to suspect that it’s never going to happen, no matter how despotic this regime gets. If so, then may our chains set lightly upon us, and all the rest.

      I’ve resigned myself to seeing that tin messiah’s logo on the American flag where the 50 stars used to be by this time in 2016, and NOT as a campaign device.

      Now excuse me, while I go watch “Brazil.”

  4. I listened to Obama’s press conference today … we are worse off than ever when it comes to national security, foreign policy, and Obamacare.

    If the truth be told; only insurance and pharmaceutical companies and hospitals will reap the benefits of health care reform. Average Americans like me will pay high costs and get nothing. This is a total scam on working people and Obama doesn’t cater to us … he caters to Blue Cross and Kaiser.
